3Sixty Insights #HRTechChat​ with Mike Bollinger, Vice President of Strategic Initiatives for Cornerstone OnDemand

Joining us for this extra special episode of #HRTechChat is Mike Bollinger, vice president of strategic initiatives at Cornerstone OnDemand and a member of the 3Sixty Insights Global Executive Advisory Council. Mike and I have a shared history. It was Mike who recruited me to Thought Leadership & Advisory Services at Cornerstone OnDemand, where I learned a lot ahead of joining Nick Biron to co-found 3Sixty Insights. As always, Mike and I engaged in a wide-ranging and far-reaching conversation exploring the outer reaches of what might be possible in HCM. Here are a few of the ideas we covered:

  • How the concepts of concrete and abstract HCM extend to the C-suite and the science behind left-brain and right-brain thinking
  • How these ideas challenge traditional, conventional notions of what business and work are for
  • What psychedelic HCM might be — i.e., the combination of concrete and abstract HCM that produces something greater than the sum of those parts and an expanded understanding of HCM
  • Why it has been a challenge to persuade employers to acknowledge the tangible value in abstract HCM — i.e., the value in how employees feel about their jobs
  • A brief detour into the origins of HR and how the lingering effects of its beginnings have limited organizational leadership’s scope of imagination as to what HCM is capable of achieving
  • How the massive disruption of 2020 catapulted us into a new reality where the employee experience, the macro expression of abstract HCM, suddenly enjoys a respect that will not go away
  • Why a deep appreciation for abstract HCM, more than a pretense, will be indispensable to preserving the meaning and purpose that humans find in work as artificial intelligence begins to dominate task-based labor even in the realm of exempt employment
  • The relationship between data, judgement, intuition and decision-making in leadership
  • Why Skynet won’t take over as long as we recognize that all managers must become leaders
  • How becoming organizations and institutions adept at continually re-skilling and up-skilling the workforce will be critical to ensuring that humans and robots coexist peaceably in the workplace, as a mutual benefit to each other in the future of work
